    I'm trying to decide which way to go, whether having the receiver drilled and tapped or going with one of those scope mounts that replaces the rear sight. Has anyone scoped a Yugo or similar Mauser? The bolt has to be altered as well unless you use the tall see-thru rings.

    Is this a nice yugo m48?
    Buddy put a Badass(sp) yugo mount on his. It goes on rear sight location. It's not to bad and he's shooting very well with it. It's to high for my likes and I have more of a chin weld than a cheak weld behind it. He used a compact 3x9 scope

    It's just kind of sad to drill holes in a nice rifle. Sell it and buy an out of the box Savage .308 with a scope already on it. A decent M48 would but that for you as I see them going for $650 and $700 with the issued kit.

    Well if you must look for an original ZARAK set up.

    I have a nice Yugo M98 , "almost" all matching #'s (wrong firing pin), and picked it up for $275 about 6 years ago. Unfortunately the stock was relieved to allow a clamp on type scope mount. I ended up drilling and tapping the receiver for a custom "dual stack" Leupold mount. Be carefull the recievers are very hard drilling is not so bad but tapping is a REAL PIA.
